About our partner schools
We carefully select our partner boarding schools according to student feedback and performance. All our partner schools have achieved good or excellent Ofsted results and offer a friendly environment which fosters learning and promotes student integration. Great care is taken to regulate the number of students of any nationality within the same school to ensure maximum integration and encourage the use of English at all times. Schools are generally located in small communities and not in large cities.
Attending a Boarding School in the UK
The use of uniform is compulsory in English Secondary Schools so students are responsible for their own kits and their maintenance and tidiness. Students have to adhere to the code of conduct of the school they will be attending and will be subject to disciplinary procedures. School information along with its procedures and students' expectations will be sent to international students upon school allocation.
Most British boarding schools now offer more flexible arrangements than other traditional boarding schools abroad. Families can benefit from this flexibility by spending short school holidays together whilst still enjoying the benefits of boarding school education.
Schools vary according to the number of students, from 90 to around 300 students.
Boarding schools can be coeducational or single-sex (boys only / girls only).
The number of subjects of study decreases as students get older. As they advance in their academic stages (Prep, GCSE, A Levels) they can have more power of choice through advanced co-curricular activities.
The subjects that schools usually offer are English, Mathematics, Science, Drama, Design and Technology, History and Geography, Music, Economics, Physical Education, and Modern Languages.
All students will stay in Boarding Houses which are supervised by senior members of the school staff.
Schools offer different types of boarding accommodation according to parents and students’ needs and requirements. It is very common for younger children to be housed in smaller dormitories whereas older students may be offered twin rooms or single study bedrooms. Parents and students can add a personal touch to the bedrooms by bringing their own things and have a little bit of home in the UK. Boarding houses are staffed senior members of the teaching staff who will look after the students round the clock.
Most boarding houses are situated on the school campus, but some can be located within the school neighbourhood, depending on your choice of school.
All boarding houses offer breakfast, lunch and dinner with students eating together in the communal dining room. Students will also be able to make snacks and hot drinks in communal facilities.
Studies carried out in our Academic Year / Term Programme are validated according to the current regulations of the Department for Education with global recognition. The student must complete all the subjects that are chosen at the beginning of the course under our supervision, and successfully pass them. Students attending years 11 and 12 must also pass their core and additional GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education). The validation will be managed by our Academic Year department in partnership with the school the student has been placed in.
All students will also have the option to visit some of the most amazing places in the UK.
